2 Residential Load is Almost Half of ERCOT Total Load at Peak. 11 Source: ERCOT 2010 State of the Market Report 21,000 MW of Residential Summer Peak Load © CONSERT INC.

3 Aggregating Residential Load Controls Significant Demand During Peak Periods. Mean: 2.99 kW Std Dev: 1.99 kW No. HVAC Hourly Reads Average kW Use/HVAC Unit Time of Day (PM) Avg. kW Based on HVAC units at 397 homes monitored across three TX utilities from 3PM to 7PM, June through September © CONSERT INC.

4 Next Generation DR Controls Over Half of the Load at the Home. 11 Based on 397 Consert gateways located within three TX utilities from 3PM to 7PM, June through September Chart data is average hourly kW No. of Hourly Gateway Reads 3.06 Mean kW/Gateway © CONSERT INC.

5 THE VIRTUAL PEAK PLANT ™ PROCESS. Load Management/Measurement Devices Are Installed Communicating meter with Consert gateway Load control device for water heater, EV, and other loads Thermostat for HVAC control 1. Consumers create energy use profiles Program, monitor and adjust household usage through web portal. 2. SMART HOME Public Wireless Network 3G & 4G wireless technology provides real-time communication between consumers and utilities. 3. Data Center Built on IBM software platforms, including DB2, WebSphere and WebSphereMQ. Pass data in HHF format. 4. Consert’s Virtual Peak Plant Allows the utility to monitor, measure, and control disaggregated loads over a real-time, standards-based IP network. 5. © CONSERT INC.

6 CUSTOMER FOCUSED SOLUTION. 1.Up to 20% Savings on energy efficiency 2.Work within boundaries defined by the customer 3.Opt out at any time 4.Free Home Energy Management System 5.Anytime, anywhere access © CONSERT INC.

7 INSTALL MEASUREMENT AND DEVICE CONTROL. For Next Generation DR MEASUREMENT & DEVICE CONTROL POOL PUMP HVAC WATER HEATER SMART HOME With the Consert solution 40% to 60% of residential home energy consumption is under control and manageable. © CONSERT INC.

8 INSTALL A SMART METER WITH THE CONSERT GATEWAY Smart Energy Gateway Zigbee enabled for HAN communications 3G or 4G modem for cellular public network communications Leverage legacy meter MV90 file for billing Sends 15 minute use data to utility in near real time © CONSERT INC.

9 INSTALL A SMART ZIGBEE ENABLED THERMOSTAT. Programmable thermostat controls the HVAC per home owner’s preferred profile and monitors HVAC energy usage in real time The thermostat communicates with the Consert gateway over the standardized Zigbee home area network (HAN) Home owners would set up their profiles and strategies Home owners can opt out at any time © CONSERT INC.

18 Current Efforts in ERCOT Scope of Pilots and POCs – LCRA Bluebonnet Electric Cooperative: peak at ~212 meters/participants; 569 kW peak Power Available – ICCP Telemetry – 10 Second Device Data Pedernales Electric Cooperative: ~100 meters/participants; 276kW peak Power Available – ICCP Telemetry – 10 Second Device Data – Grayson-Collin Electric Cooperative: under way with 200 installs planned – CPS Energy Pilot: 89 meters/participants; 164 kW peak Power Available 2010 – 2011 Early Commercial Deployment: 500 installations ~1 MW peak power Full Deployment: 140,000 meters/participants; 250 MW peak Power Available – Implementing ICCP Telemetry – 10 Second Device Data

19 © CONSERT INC. Current Efforts in ERCOT Proposed Uses for Consert Technology with MPs – Reduced kWh consumption / energy efficiency of 10% - 20% – Reduced 4 CP and TCOS – Real Time MCP events for negative load/wholesale energy – Load Resources Pre-POC/CLR: EILS Post-POC/CLR: Non-Spin, Responsive Reserve, and eventually Regulation

20 © CONSERT INC. Aggregated Load as a CLR Premise Consert believes it can provide value added Load Management Services into the ERCOT market by aggregating residential and small commercial load, and providing the load resource telemetry to ERCOT Consert is looking to get approved under the CURRENT Nodal Controllable Load Resource (CLR) Protocol and Operating Guidelines Consert plans to run a Proof of Concept (POC) with ERCOT emulating a CLR test plan History Consert has numerous pilots underway with ERCOT Munis/Coops for 6+ months Consert has been working with ERCOT to determine a path forward and any showstopper issues in order to perform a CLR POC Test Consert recognizes that potential future ERCOT protocol changes could optimize the tool’s use in the ERCOT market, but for now no ERCOT PRRs are planned

21 © CONSERT INC. Aggregated Load as a CLR In discussions with ERCOT staff, the following are baseline criteria for the Consert solution in the ERCOT Controllable Load Resource (CLR) market as defined by ERCOT protocols No Under Frequency Relay (UFR) is required Resource will have primary frequency response capability that automatically responds to frequency changes similar to a generator governor Aggregation of Load must be at a transmission physical load point as defined in the ERCOT network model Aggregated load must be modeled to 1, and only 1, transmission physical load point No resource rollover would be possible for Consert solution at this time due to network model limitations Aggregated load must be at least 100kW to offer into the ERCOT Ancillary Service CLR markets and qualify under the Nodal CLR test plan Aggregated load must follow ICCP operating guidelines and performance criteria Aggregated load must be base lined for M&V analysis and settlements

22 © CONSERT INC. Topics to Address Registration (RARF) AS Markets under consideration Day Ahead and Real Time (MMS, COPs, LFC, EMS) Telemetry (ICCP) Primary Frequency Response Measurement and Verification Other Considerations

23 © CONSERT INC. Summary Consert currently plans to conduct its Proof of Concept with ERCOT and MPs in late 2011 / early 2012 Data from POC will be provided to ERCOT for independent evaluation ERCOT has committed in providing recommendations for improvements in the ERCOT markets ERCOT has committed in updated processes and procedures for small load resources Again, we are not planning to submit any changes to the ERCOT protocols or operating guides at this time
